Showtime said today it will release all six episodes of new comedy Dice on Sunday, April 10 on digital platforms to subscribers ahead of the first episode’s linear TV premiere later that day. The full season will be available beginning at 12 AM April 10 on the Showtime streaming service, Showtime Anytime and Showtime on Demand. The first episode will premiere on linear TV at 9:30 PM ET/PT on Showtime, with subsequent episodes continuing to air every Sunday. Check out a clip of the first episode above.
Created by Scot Armstrong (Old School, The Hangover Part II), the scripted, semi-autobiographical series will follow the life of comedian Andrew Dice Clay, chronicling the stops and starts of his attempts at a career resurgence in his transplanted home base of Las Vegas. The series also stars Kevin Corrigan, and guest stars Natasha Leggero, Lorraine Bracco, Adrien Brody, Michael Rapaport, Wayne Newton, Criss Angel and Rita Rudner.
“We’re excited to release Dice in its entirety across our streaming, on demand and authenticated viewing platforms,” said Gary Levine, President of Programming at Showtime Networks. “With its six-episode run, we feel this comedy is ideally suited to being consumed all at once. We’re always looking for new ways to make our programming stand-out, and we’re confident that a ‘Dice binge’ will appeal to both fans and skeptics alike, and help spread the word about his very funny new Showtime series.”
Armstrong and Dice Clay also executive produce with Sean Furst, Bryan Furst, Bruce Rubenstein, Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka. Dice is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios.
The full season of Dice can be accessed by Showtime subscribers to the network’s stand-alone streaming service on Apple, Roku, Amazon and Google, and through streaming partners including Hulu, Sony PlayStation Vue and Amazon Prime Video. Additionally, the full season can be viewed via Showtime Anytime, Showtime on Demand, or TV Everywhere services through cable, DBS and telco providers.
